Hi everyone! I’m Kumi Yuasa, one of the US SCEA producers here in Santa Monica, and I’m here to introduce one of the newest fantasy titles to you, made especially for the PlayStation Portable system, THE EYE OF JUDGMENT LEGENDS. Much like the earlier version we released on the PS3, THE EYE OF JUDGEMENT LEGENDS is a digital card-based game that lets you collect, trade and battle magical creatures on the move that combines card trading, magic and adventure with the freedom to play wherever players want! Available as a download only from the PlayStation Store in Spring 2010, THE EYE OF JUDGMENT LEGENDS will be the perfect way to capture any gamer’s imagination wherever they are!

THE EYE OF JUDGMENT LEGENDS on the PSP packs a vast world of magic, mystery and battles into the palm of your hands. At its heart are more than 300 digital trading cards, over 30 of which are brand new to the franchise! What makes it even more portable is that the card collecting experience from the PS3 hit has been streamlined, no longer requiring the PlayStation Eye peripheral nor physical cards to be carried along with you. The PSP version’s digital cards can be earned by playing through the game, traded wirelessly from one PSP to another, won in battle with friends and enemies, and even bought from the PlayStation Store in future downloadable content releases. Each card features a monster, dragon, mage or mythical warrior with their own special skills ready to do battle against your opponent, and some cards are rare to come across. However, players must carefully choose among the cards they have collected to compile their ultimate deck. The cards are not lifeless images – these creatures come to life on screen springing out of their card and into attack, battling real time as they hack, slash and cast spells on each other. Deploy the right creatures from your deck to defeat your opponent and secure victory!

With more than 300 cards to collect, great adventures to be had and great times with friends to be enjoyed, THE EYE OF JUDGMENT LEGENDS is an essential PSP title for all lovers of fantasy, action and strategy.

I’ll leave you with that for now. Continue to check back here on the PSBlog for updates about the new single and multi player modes, plus other news on THE EYE OF JUDGEMENT LEGENDS!

I could be mistaken, but it would seem from some of those screenshots that there’s actually a story in it this time? Am I correct in this assumption?

    Yes, there\’s a story mode this time! : )

will the prevous decks be in the psp version, or will it be a whole new experience. How much will these new decks coast, how many cards in a deck and is this via ad hoc party working?? ty hope to pick this up? is digital download only or both

Cool, I might try this out. Would have been cool to use the camera accessory for a game like this, maybe as an option…
Anyway what will be the price?

    Sorry, no use of the camera accessory…

    However I think you will enjoy the game with embedded cards. It\’s a different experience from the PS3 version.

    Stay tuned for the price information.

You all really soured me with this version of the game via PS3. I’ve never seen a franchise handled in such a poor way. Delays, shadiness, dishonesty and lies from the developers, producers and those involved.

It will take a LOT for me to want to buy this for my PSP. I’ll keep checking in. Having a storyline is a plus.


ShadowFox300 said:

Aw I thought they would make a second EYE of Judgment on the PS3. Oh well still looks cool to see another one on the PSP.

adz2k7 said:

December 21st, 3:14 pm

I have Eye of Judgment for the PS3 and every single card. Really enjoyed that game :)

That makes this a must buy for me, providing it gets released in Europe that is ;)

EdgarFriendly said:

December 21st, 3:16 pm

Will the fight animations be in this version as well?

JumpMan33 said:

December 21st, 3:17 pm

Sweet, I loved the first game on the PS3 =) and I can’t wait to check this one out.
Hopefully after Sony’s new motion controller comes out and more people have the PS Eyes, a 2ed game for the PS3 gets announced.

Cool. Card game, on PSN, awesome screens. Sounds like something I’ll get when it comes out. Any thoughts as to pricing? I understand it won’t be for a while, but still…

Having the actual cards are more fun.

Yaholo said:

December 21st, 3:36 pm

I am so stoked about this! This is perfect idea for a portable gaming system. I will definitely be on board for this.

As a fan of CCGs, let me just ask – PLEASE! make sure there is good card artwork. 3D models popping out on the field is cool, but we card players love browsing the artwork in our collections!

    We won\’t let you down. You will enjoy browsing the card artwork!

Zezzler said:

December 21st, 3:39 pm

I’m Guessing its not compatible with the pspgo?

crowsticky1234 said:

December 21st, 3:41 pm

I’m interested but I have a question, does this have infrastructure?

AKGermany said:

December 21st, 3:44 pm

Can you get every card in the game through regular play or are there cards that you’ll have to buy (not talking about possible expansion sets which I assume you’d have to buy)?

How does buying cards online work? Will it be random luck, as if you’d buy a physical booster pack or can you select the cards you want?

depward said:

December 21st, 3:44 pm

As someone who really enjoyed and loved The Eye of Judgment on the PS3 but stopped playing due to not having the space / time available to set it all up every time I wanted to play… this is awesome :) Can’t wait!

    Thanks for your support!
    Yes, PSP version is handy since you don\’t have to set up the peripherals and cards to play. I\’m sure existing EOJ fans will be satisfied with the PSP version too!

CherylRose said:

December 21st, 3:50 pm

No umd version? Very upsetting because I was seriously considering buying this game….

Emiel said:

December 21st, 3:52 pm

No retail version? Only download?

PullusPardusUS said:

December 21st, 3:56 pm

would you guys support the cards more? they are really really hard to find and they don’t exist in where i live now.

im sure thats why you went to digital this time. but i loved the innovative idea and this game =]

PullusPardusUS said:

December 21st, 3:59 pm

btw i also noticed you guys went to the anime style models, it fits the PSP perfectly! =]

ChaseHammerJ said:

December 21st, 4:14 pm

you guys killed off the original EOJ on ps3 with overpriced expansion downloads and unavailable to purchase booster packs. You abandoned the game which was awesome with no marketing and left the game alone for over a year. Now you want me to purchase basically the same game again with less spiffy features such as card recognition by way of camera. Cmon. Ill pass.

sorry its how i feel.

npro681 said:

December 21st, 4:15 pm

Will this be a PlayStation Network Release? I would love to be able to play this on my pspgo.

rxpapi12 said:

December 21st, 4:29 pm

You guys rock for this, unfortunately I found your console release to be to time consiming having to deal with physical cards (although it was really fun :D) This will be an awesome alternative that I look forward too.

    Thanks for your comment.

    With a story mode and new cards added to the franchise, PSP version is not a simple \”port\” from the PS3 version. I\’m sure all existing EOJ fans will be satisfied!


December 21st, 4:55 pm

The move to all digital cards is exactly what I needed to put me over the edge and purchase this game. Will look forward to it this coming Spring. =)

One question: Does it have infrastructure mode support for online play?

Dryde said:

December 21st, 5:02 pm

im OBSESSED with this franchise. and i look forward to this title. i just wish i can get set 3 cards in stores or online, there out of stock everywhere. ebay is the only way.

Sakimori_X said:

December 21st, 5:11 pm

Nice! I liked EOJ for PS3, but always felt the camera accessory and physical card placement were both unnecessary. Would definitely get this day-one if a no-gimmick PSP version is in the works.

mgsfoxhound2 said:

December 21st, 5:20 pm

is it possible to get more content made for the ps3 version

Zarxce said:

December 21st, 5:25 pm

Download only makes me kind of sad (I have little space left on my memory stick). Maybe consider a UMD version?

KILLZONE79 said:

December 21st, 5:54 pm

question: are we going to see more DLC for the PS3 version of Eye of Judgement?

and also, i noticed the cards are hard to find. can you point in the right direction where i can buy more cards for the PS3 version?

jds07 said:

December 21st, 5:55 pm

Dang, I thought they were finally going to annouce a camera for the PSP and PSPgo. What’s the point of having that camera icon on the XMB, if they won’t release a camera peripheral in the US?

liketoski said:

December 21st, 6:04 pm

I loved EOJ on PS3, but none of the card packs were in stores. Do you know which stores I can find them?

TakiFuGu said:

December 21st, 6:22 pm

I love The Eye of Judgment game but I will not support them anymore. I invested heavily on the PS3 version and they totally ditched the game. Cards were scarce all over and in the end I ended up with a bunch of double, triple cards with set 2 and 3 unable to find anywhere.

Darkpen said:

December 21st, 6:56 pm

I’m definitely interested. I was turned off from buying the first one for various reasons, but with this version have a story, nice art, and no need for buying cards, and apparently a story mode, I’m optimistic.

JumpMan33 said:

December 21st, 7:03 pm

for those who were asking, i believe you can still get eoj cards off

also, you might want to check out this world wide tournament event if your into eoj.

Ratchet426 said:

This is fantastic news! Glad to see the death of the EoJ franchise has been greatly exaggerated :-)

But Sony; please, Please, PLEASE show some love for all of us loyal PS3 EoJ fans and give us the updated/balanced/new cards in *physical* form, and a patch so we can enjoy all of the benefits you’ve brought to the PSP version.

Eye of Judgment PS3 still has a very loyal fanbase and it would really be a disservice to all of us (not to mention a missed marketing opportunity) if the PS3 version didn’t get some kind of update to be on par with the new PSP Legends.

Think of all the cool and innovative PSPPS3 options you could enable by bringing the PS3 version up to speed with the new cards and story mode too!

Again, fantastic news! Looking forward to Legends!!

This is just awesome news. I’ve been playing EoJ since day one and I love it.

I have no plans though to spend money on digital copies of the cards I already have paid for once. Is there a way to export your PS3 collection to the PSP?

Poxxer said:

December 22nd, 4:36 am

Eye of Judgment is a great game. I enjoyed the Augment Reality aspect with the collectible cards (when I could get the lighting correct).

A downloadable content based version that is portable should be a hit with CCG gamers.

Nicely down.

aliseea said:

December 22nd, 5:19 am

Great!!! Great news! Im speechless…
Good job!

Viprdude said:

December 22nd, 5:53 am


I was wondering if the cards we have purchased can be used in the PSP game or will there be no connectivity or ability to transfer cards already purchased onto the PSP system?


Mosh_Pit said:

December 22nd, 6:18 am

Wow very nice!!! I got the ps3 version with the full 3 sets card collection. Can’t wait to pick this one up. Oh and is there any online functionality??

DLM16A2 said:

December 22nd, 6:27 am

Couple of questions:

Will there be any interaction with the PS3 version like unlocking the cards that you have the physical verion of? Or will you have to repurchase the digital copy?

Will the new 30 cards be available for the PS3 version (physical or maybe digital support through a patch)?

Is there a predetermined timeline for future support like only having 3 sets for the PS3 version?

Finally, Will there still be any continued support for the PS3 version parallel to the PSP releases or is that one dead and gone?

FilliamHMuffman said:

December 22nd, 6:42 am

I wish you would continue support for the PS3 somehow, but at least the game will continue in some form. The camera gimmick and the requirement to buy software updates and buy the actual cards turned many people off from a great game.

LordRaoh said:

December 22nd, 7:24 am

will there be any more games like Eye of Judgment coming to the PS3?

I feel like i bought the camera thinking there would be a lot more support for it, i was expecting a few more original games like EoJ as well as maybe Yugioh, Magic the Gathering, Marvel VS.

Can we expect more PlayStation Eye support outside of the motion controller in 2010?

k1ngsnak3 said:

December 22nd, 7:58 am

This is fantastic news (or update since I think word about this hit the web a month ago). I loved playing the PS3 version and this is going to be a must have, especially if the card mechanics stay relatively the same. Great!!!


December 22nd, 10:37 am

Just like to warn any new players, that last time Sony released a new set on the PS3 version they abandoned all support for the game after players spent £1000’s on collecting the cards, and they left the game in a mess with very few cards able to compete in the game, manly due to a select few overpowering cards that still ruin the game today, Sony never made any attempt to respond to the community or correct the problems, I would think twice before buying this game

crusher915 said:

December 22nd, 12:58 pm

THERE IS A SIMPLE WAY YOU COULD USE TE CAMERA YOU WOULD HOLD UP the cards in front of the camera and use the buttons on the psp to place it. (if the camera can do that that is)

eatthemall said:

December 22nd, 1:06 pm

when will lunch?

waypoetic said:

December 22nd, 3:16 pm

LOL! The game is known for the integration with the PS Eye, BUT, the PSP version does not have this support. I hope no one buys this game and supports your lazyness.

BalramRules said:

Sweeeet, this sounds AWESOME!
